GDPR Advice

GDPR HEADINE PIC

The information and advice available on the GDPR legal requirements coming into play on the 25th May 2018 is enough to make your head spin.

For those of you that don’t know, the GDPR is regulations on how you collect, store and use your customer data. It’s important to note that this is not a new data protection obligation. It replaces and mirrors the previous requirement to have ‘appropriate technical and organisational measures’ under the Data Protection Act 1998 (the 1998 Act).

Before I talk about our present successes with Strelitzia, I have to go back a short while as for us there was a time before Strelitzia. A little over a year ago we were looking for a new EPOS system for our flowershop that would satisfy our requirements and meet the new guidelines from the tax office.
